Stop allowing people to speak negatively over your life. Listen, they may mean well, but their words may be all wrong, and we all know our words have power! We were created in God’s image! So, it’s important to know that you have the power to receive or reject someone else’s words being spoken over your life, especially when it doesn’t line up with the Word of God!
This is why it’s important to listen to sound judgment that comes from God. Make sure that your circle of friends are in sync with the Holy Spirit, because if you’re upset about something, a good friend may empathize with you, but they will advise you with reason. A good friend isn’t going to make the situation worse, they’re going to help you overcome it. This is very tricky though, because someone could have good intentions and go about it the wrong way! For instance: If you’re upset about losing a job you’ve had for eighteen years, when you could’ve retired in two more years, and you go and tell your friend, and he or she tells you, “You’ve worked hard all these years and now you have nothing to show for it!
That company has ruined your life!” This friend’s intentions weren’t to make you feel hopeless, but that’s exactly what they put into the atmosphere! They really was trying to empathize with you, but their delivery was all wrong! You don’t have to receive those words into your spirit, because you are not hopeless when you have God! God is your source!
That company was just a tool He used to bless you, but it was never your source! Just like He blessed you with that job, He can bless you with a better one, a more fulfilling one, a purposed one! Get excited when your plans fail, because that means God has a better plan and His plans never fail! Isaiah 55:11 (New Heart English Bible) “So shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth: it shall not return to me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing I sent it to do.” When God speaks, things happen!
It doesn’t matter if a parent, spouse, friend or stranger has spoken negatively over you (whether they meant to or not), all that matters is what God has declared over your life! I want to encourage you that no matter what you’re going through, you’re not alone, and you’re not in a hopeless situation! I don’t care if your health is saying otherwise, our God is a healer! If you don’t have peace of mind, Jesus Christ is a strong deliverer! Hold on! God is your source and He will not let you down! ❤️
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
